The rain didn’t slow us down at our Communion Breakfast on May 12.  It was a very nice way to start Mother’s Day.  Once again we saw John Dillon coordinate a fine event.  I especially want to thank Chief Kevin Nulty, (now retired!!) for speaking at the breakfast.  As always, Dominican College gave us the “Red Carpet Treatment”. 


I thank John and his committee for all their work.  

The May meeting at Casa Mia is our opportunity to recognize the academic achievements of our college bound students with the presentation of scholarships.  We congratulate the winners and wish them all the best in their studies.  These awards are made possible from the successes of events like our Golf Outing and the Super 50-50.  

May 15th was National Law Enforcement Memorial Day.  On Sunday, May 19th, at the County Court House, in New City, we remembered those from Rockland that gave their lives in the line of duty.  NEVER FORGET.  

I didn’t want to lead off with this – but the news of the parole of Judith Clark was indeed disappointing.  I guess we shouldn’t be surprised considering the political climate of this state and the overall lack of respect toward law enforcement officers.  But what can we do?  First, we can move election day to April 16.  

Keep track of events like this parole debacle and other disasters during the year.
Take note of which candidates even bother to attend our Candidates Night in October.
Remember these things when they ask for your support in November.
